A well written novel that explores sensitive is issues in a thoughtful way - a must read. Well researched and easy to read.

Despite the questionable cover picture, this novella (the third instalment in a series) is not ill done. I came across it while browsing for M/M fiction and this is up to now the only volume of the series dealing with gay characters.

While writing is not beautiful in itself it is always to the point; the author tells us proficiently the story of two married men of the times finding love and passion in each other's arms.
Until time travel is invented, nobody will know how exactly homosexuality was considered in Britain in the X century, but Ms Byrne has done some research and there is nothing in her plot that strikes me as outlandish. Old Germans (the ancient tribes speaking some kind of Germanic dialect between 200 B.C. and 1100 A.D.) were not reknown for their acceptance of homosexuals but the importance of the theme in their literary output (see Old Edda) is such as to make one think it must have been very common and blatant despite the official stigma. The Danes must have shared most of this cultural heritage but we know little of how their habits changed in the centuries during which they intermarried with the Britons.

Kjartan and Lini are two likeable characters, fully rounded. Their passion rings true and intense and their sex scenes, never indulged upon but convincing, are quite good. I only wish they would switch roles to make them even better.
Mildrith, Kjartan's wife, is not as well rounded: a pity as hers is the most complex character in the story and her thoughts should have been given much more room.
The plot is generally well thought of and executed. Narrative tension is always there and tight. The fight scenes are slightly confusing though.

I have to admit, I read the book knowing that it was going to be different from what I usually read, I do not mind the M/M factor but it was not believable in the sense that the storyline seems really muddled up. The fight scenes were strange to say the least. I am actually annoyed that i bought this book and personally I wouldn't recommend it to people but make your own decision about it but for me I did not take to it the way I normally do to books.

OK, I admit I saw the cover and the blurb and said "this has got to be taking the Micheal". It is, but I'm not sure the author actually knows it.

If Barbara Cartland ever toyed with the idea of m/m stories this would have been her first draft. Camp, coy and carp. I would throw in anachronistic if I could spell it. It's just beyond bad, it's daft and embarrassing.
I'd rather be discovered interfering an innocent Dyson than have someone find this on my Kindle.

Argggh! I need a shower to feel clean again.
